Logistics and multimodal transport

What do we want to achieve ?

The EU transport policy aims at a form of mobility that is sustainable, energy-efficient and respectful of the environment. These goals can be achieved by using multimodal transport that combines optimally the various modes of transport, exploiting each one’s strength and minimising the weaknesses. The European Commission hence pursues a policy of multimodality by ensuring better integration of the transport modes and establishing interoperability at all levels of the transport system.

Furthermore, to ensure that transport chains are satisfying the needs of the users, efficient logistics services are needed. The European Commission is working together with stakeholders to support the creation of a favourable framework for the logistics services in the EU. The EU transport policy aims at a form of mobility that is sustainable, energy-efficient and respectful of the environment.
